I started another thread here:
But now I have a different problem.
Now it locks up the PC and will not let me publish the project. I have deleted all of the project files on the server and tried several times to publish and it stops on the bin folder but gives no error. I can't delete the dll from the bin folder because it says it's in use.
I've had it. I really like the Telerik controls but it seems between all our developers they are nothing but trouble. I'm not the first to have this problem. My other developer has to publish his project to his PC, then hand copies the files up. Now he refuses to use any of the controls.
As Sr. developer for our plant I'm starting to agree.
My new error from the web server is this when I try to run the project after uploading:
Could not load file or assembly 'Telerik.Web.UI.Skins' or one of its dependencies. The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80070020)
I have rebooted my pc and tried again. The problems started when I added a reference to the Telerik.Web.UI.Skins.dll so I could use a skin.
What exactly are the steps please to getting these skins to work? And please don't point me to the tutorials. We've read them and have tried them all. Are missing a step?
Here's what we did:
I added the datetime picker control to the project. When I try to select a skin it tells me I need to go copy the dll from another place on the drive to by bin folder. (Why this isn't automatic, I don't know)
I go to c:\program files.... and finally get the skin dll file and copy it to my project's bin filder.
Then it will let me add the skin.
Now when I publish the project it can't find the skin again on the server and it tells me to add a reference to the dll in visual studio.
I add the reference to the dll in the bin folder. (Now the trouble begins)
The project refuses to publish correctly and the dll gets tied up somehow so I rebooted my PC.
Nothing helps until I remove the reference and throw away the skin. Then maybe it starts working again.
Where did we go wrong?
